(American Meat Institute)

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued Directive 8080.1, Revision 6: Recall of Meat and Poultry Products.

This directive provides the terminology, responsibilities and public notification procedures regarding the voluntary recall of FSIS-inspected meat and poultry products.  It replaces FSIS Directive 8080.1, Revision 5, dated November 17, 2008.

The only change is regarding Attachment 3: Effectiveness Checks.   This change notifies establishments that FSIS will verify that “consignees are following the recalling firm’s instructions with regard to the recalled product, e.g., destruction or return.”
